Writing on his Twitter page earlier this week, US President Donald Trump threatened to launch a missile attack on Syria in response to the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has announced that the Netherlands does not consider participating in possible airstrikes on Syria, according to Reuters.
The statement came a few days after US President Donald Trump said on his Twitter page that Russia should brace itself for “new and smart” US missiles to be launched on Syria.
Shortly after, Trump backpedaled the announcement by tweeting that the attack on Syria “could be very soon or not so soon at all” and that he has “never said when an attack on Syria would take place.”
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in turn that the US President has yet to make a final decision on the use of force against Syria as he currently considers the intelligence information.
